Cooperation with Graduate Schools

Education is provided in conjunction with the graduate-school Science Communication Course

Hokkaido University established the Science Communication Course at the department of Natural History Sciences in Graduate School of Science in April 2006, making it the nation’s first full-fledged course of its kind to be established on a regular graduate course.

The course offers master’s degree programs (with the standard two years required for completion) and doctoral degree programs (three years) with the aim of producing high-level experts and researchers in science and technology communication.

Close cooperation with CoSTEP

CoSTEP provides education in close cooperation with the graduate school’s Science Communication Course. Students can effectively combine CoSTEP classes and those at the graduate school for efficient learning based on both theory and practice.

Capacity for skill improvement and degree acquisition

Students can obtain master’s degrees (M.S.) or doctorates (D.Sc.) under the relevant programs on the graduate school’s Science Communication Course while improving their skills in the required areas for science and technology communicators at CoSTEP.
